Zip line testing

Working on a zip line gorpo mount for a video..any suggestions on how to make it smoother?

 go to a hard ware store and get a small ratcheting tie down and put it on one end and crank the line really tight, this only being as good as your anchore points of coarse.

i tried something like this a while ago, i put a motor and pulley wheel on the camera mount so i could speed up and slow down (with a braking esc) the camera as needed by using a remote control from an rc car.

good luck

 maybe weight it down more. (center weight). then use something in front to adjust the speed? maybe like a cloth or something. just an idea.

 Ya I should strap some metal to the rig. It'll balance the shot a bit
